mia youtube M.I.A. flips us off during Madonna's Super Bowl halftime show

Madonna promised no wardrobe malfunctions during her Super Bowl halftime show. But it appears that she didn’t guarantee that M.I.A., who joined the Material Girl on stage, wouldn’t do anything stupid.

During their performance of “Give Me All Your Luvin’,” the 36-year-old decided to flip the bird to an estimated 190 million viewers watching the game. The screen then goes fuzzy. Whether that was the network censors reacting too late or part of the edit, that’s unknown. But it’s certain those details will come out soon.

The NFL has been carefully vetting out their mid-game performances ever since the 2004 Super Bowl in which Janet Jackson exposed her right breast.

Maybe the league should just hook an iPod up to the stadium speakers and run a laser light show. This would certainly avoid such problems.
